Crab Egg Drop Soup



I am rather partial to egg drop soup, its easy to put together and the way the egg cooks fascinates me. Eggs are super foods a good source of protein, choline, Vitamin B6, iron (in the yolk) and are fine in moderation. We enjoy plenty at our house, I often boil a couple for picnic lunches for the kids or on road trips. This is a versatile recipe and really you could get creative and add anything to it.





Ingredients:

  • 1 Large egg (beaten)
  • 2 Tomatoes, chopped
  • one teaspoon of five spice powder
  • one small can of crab meat
  • one teaspoon ginger/garlic paste
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 cups water
  • a dash of fish sauce
  • 1/2 cup frozen pea



Method:

  1. heat a little canola oil in a wok on high, add ginger/garlic paste, five spice and tomato and let it reduce down to a paste
  2. add stock, fish sauce, peas and crab meat and simmer for 10 minutes 
  3. Beat egg and pour in as the soup is boiling stirring it as you add, it helps if someone can stir for you :-)
  4. enjoy



Have a wonderful and restful weekend everyone ;-)
